Brent Integrated Diabetes Service picks up top DESMOND prize

Brent Integrated Diabetes Service at the London NW Health Care scooped one of the top prizes at this year’s Celebrating DESMOND Awards.

Nina Patel and Salma Mehar (pictured) picked up the Innovation prize during an awards ceremony held at Leicester Diabetes Centre in October.

The North Cumbria University Hospital  NHS Trust also picked up an Innovation prize and Northern Ireland’s Northern Health and Social Care Trust was presented with the Excellence Award.

The Team of the Year award was presented to Bedford Hospital NHS Trust and Nurjahan Selant, from the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, picked up the Educator of the Year trophy.

Launched in 2014 to reward the efforts of DESMOND teams across the country, the awards programme has got bigger and better each year.

DESMOND Director Bernie Stribling said: “Congratulations to all the winners. Not only do the awards recognise those who work hard to improve the lives of people who have type 2 diabetes, but it also provides a unique opportunity to share and showcase good practice.

“As well as rewarding excellence, the awards are an opportunity to promote engagement and encourage DESMOND teams to ensure key learning is disseminated across our community.”
